The Lagos State Judo Association (LSJA) is organizing a one-day seminar cum enlightenment programme for female youths in the state as part of efforts to popularize the sport. According to the chairman of LSJA, Sheriff Hammed, the essence of the seminar is aimed at promoting self-defense among females in the state.
“With the spate of rape, robbery, kidnappings, and general violence against women, the Lagos State Judo Association has partnered with the Tinubu Support Organisation (TSO) Lagos Chapter to raise awareness of rape in our society and promote self-defense amongst the youth by engaging them in judo.
It is hoped that this programme will help protect our loved ones and provide an effective remedy against the security malaise afflicting our society,” Hammed said.
The event will take place on Thursday, April 29 at Mobolaji Johnson Sports Complex, Rowe Park, Yaba.
Apart from the self-defense skills to be acquired by participants, the event is aimed at unearthing talents for the state in judo as well as providing a platform for youth to engage in meaningful activities.
